Chelsea continue its flawless Premier League beating Newcastle (1-2)



Chelsea defeated Newcastle at St James’ Park on Sunday (1-2) with goals from Eden Hazard (76) and Marcos Alonso (87) late in the game. The Magpies had equalized by Joselu (83). The Blues continue without fail, and join Liverpool and Watford at the top of the championship.

Just like Antonio Conte , Carlo Ancelotti , Guus Hiddink and Jose Mourinho before him, Maurizio Sarri has won his first three Premier League matches with Chelsea. But it was complicated for his Blues against a defense of Newcastle. Unable to make differences in the game despite undivided dominance, the Londoners relegated themselves to two sets of kicks to win (2-1). It was finally poor DeAndre Yedlin, deflecting a shot by Marcos Alonso, who crucified the Magpies a few minutes from time. Chelsea joins Liverpool and Watford at the top of the standings.

Chelsea holds its perfect start to the season. Even if the content, in front of and behind, remains to perfect. Despite a ball possession largely in his favor (81% on the whole match), the team of Maurizio Sarri had all the trouble in the world to bypass the tactics set up by Rafael Benitez , namely a diagram in 5 -4-1 designed to defend by minimizing risks. Led by a very provocative and somewhat lonely Eden Hazard, the Blues lacked solution, speed and accuracy to take over during their built phases. So there was logically 0 to 0 at the break.
